1st stop: Prokopske Valley

We will leave BIKO shop and after a short drive (15 minutes) we will park already and we will walk in a natural park famous for its cliffs and views on Prague and of course we will enjoy both.

2nd stop: The forest center

When a local wild animal has a problem it is taken to the forest center just outside Prague where veterinary can take care of it.

3rd stop: Amerika Canyon (The Czech Grand Canyon)

This former quarry is now a picturesque gorge that hides a sunken lake.

4th stop: Karlstejn castle

Karlstejn is an amazing large gothic castle in perfect conditions, built upon a promontory, wanted by Charles IV in 1348. We will spend 2,5 hours in the area and you have the following options:

– Skip the walk and enjoy the many cafes and restaurants of the castle area.

– Go for the 1 hour guided tour of the castle although we don’t recommend visiting the interieur as its beauty is in the external part. You can anyway enter the castle walls for free and it is very nice.

– Walk to the the best possible view point of the castle. Then go down to the castle area and have food and enter the castle walls. This hike is around 2,7 km on natural trails with some ups and downs.

5th stop: The monastery & the rock

Svaty Jan pod Skalou in Czech means St. John under the Rock. It is a monastery built at the base of a 100m sheer cliff. The location is peaceful and bucolic. Some people consider it one of the most beautiful and peaceful places of our country.

Swimmining option for hot days

People from Prague know very well that when it is hot, there is nothing better than to swim in the Berounka river.

6th stop? Prague!

It is time to go home tired and hopefully very happy!
